't talk about any specific pieces of evidence. >> shepard: all right. to the story that got us here and that is this idea of a motive. it's my understanding from the reporting and from this source at foxnews.com that the reason they think this might be a motive is that he had heard that his mother loved that school where she was volunteering maybe more than she loved him. and that's why he would target her and then that school. >> the story says that the kids that were killed were all first graders. the kids that his mother was spending the most time with when she was volunteering there, according to the report, he was very, very angry about that. and also very angry about the possibility that she might try to have him committed to a psychiatric institution. >> shepard: wow. more funerals today as a result of his actions. >> yeah. two funerals today and two more funerals today, all of them for six-year-old kids and the two funerals this morning and this afternoon were back to back at the saint rose of lima church. the first was for james mattioli, six-year-old boy whose family says
handguns, at least one rifle. and then also bob, this a.p. report that john just brought us up to date on, that the brother may be in custody. what have you learned? >> i keep asking that question, all of our folks here working the phones and we're asking the question of various sources, is there one shooter? is there more than one shooter? who's the second person that was detained at the scene? and i have to tell you, so far all of the information we're getting-- it always comes with a caveat-- but it all seems to suggest there was one shooter. the person who was detyned near the shooting scene was a man described as wearing b.d.u.s, khaki fatigues and working near the woods. i had a number of people tell me we don't think he's a player in this. that said, now the associated press says they're talking to the shooter's younger brother as john made the point this might just be due diligence by investigators to obviously want to talk to available family members and friends and close associates. so we can't say one way or the other and i think we need to be careful about not getting out too
and that gunman is dead. as police have been telling us now, 20 children dead, 18 of them dead at the scene. and in addition to that, six adults are also dead, including the principal of the school. we understand that yet another adult was found dead at another location that police are not officially disclosing as of yet. and we are told that the mother of the suspected shooter, who is also dead at the scene, was also killed. she is a teacher and she was also killed at that school, according to our law enforcement sources. in addition to this, we are also told by our sources that another person is being questioned at this time but is not being called a suspect right now, and also that person is not being identified, wolf. so while the school is being called secure and safe by law enforcement authorities right now, they are -- they still have a lot of investigating to do. they have not officially released the name of the shooter or the other person being questioned or the names of any of the victims at this time. it's just an awful scene, and parents found out about this, wolf, when they rec
